Atlas Copco Compressors LLC will be exhibiting this week at the 2019 Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America in Denver, Colorado. The company will display the latest advancements in compressed air products, nitrogen generators, and air distribution systems.
The compressed air and gas solutions from Atlas Copco are designed to work in harmony with your application and fit exactly to your needs. These include air compressors, vacuum pumps, nitrogen generators, and aluminum and stainless steel AIRnet piping. The benefits of a single source include single service contracts, common controller system and increased networking capability. Both our air compressors and vacuum pumps are available in oil-free technology with the highest purity level – essential when producing a great pint of beer.
The biggest challenge for a brewery can be sizing this equipment. Buy too small and there is a risk you will be investing again in a few months or years, but go too large and you know the inefficiency of the machines can hurt your bottom line and potentially damage the equipment.
Atlas Copco addresses this challenge within its technology. Innovations such as VSD (Variable Speed Drive) basically give a customer the flexibility of many machines in one and provide peace-of-mind when it comes to efficiency and production. This technology also applies to our vacuum pump range. Atlas Copco will showcase a recent case study where the company has been able to save a brewery 5,000 gallons of water a day, while reducing wastage and improving energy efficiency.
In addition, many breweries are starting to reap the benefits from producing onsite nitrogen. The benefits are summarized by purity, pressure and payback:
• Purity: Maintain, monitor and control the specified purity for every application.
• Pressure: Always maintains the specified pressure of N2 to your application.
• Payback: The average cost of N2 can be one-fifth of the cost of bottled nitrogen and often has a payback of less than two years.
There are many ways to make air and nitrogen. The efficiency considerations are as varied as each customers’ needs – and Atlas Copco embraces this challenge. Visit Atlas Copco at booth 18122 in the Main Exhibit Hall.
